"It is most difficult, in my mind, to separate any success, whether it be in your profession, your family, or as in my case, in basketball, from religion. "
John Wooden

I view the First Amendment to the US Constitution as creating "a wall of seperation" between church and basketball. Of course, I'm not a Supreme Court Justice.

If I put my left foot in... put your left foot in. If I shake it all about... shake it all about.
